Vinci wins Budapest championship

Roberta Vinci won her sixth WTA title--and her third of the season--today, when she defeated Irina-Camelia Bagu 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 in the final of the Budapest Grand Prix. The champion, seeded number 1, went down 2-4 in the third set, but came back, as she has done all week. Vinci was two points from a loss to Timea Babos in the second round, and she had to save match points against Zuzana Kucova in the quarterfinals.

Vinci is currently ranked number 25 in the world; this is the highest ranking of her career.

Top seeds Anabel Medina Garrigues and Alicja Rosolska won the doubles title, defeating Natalie Grandin and Vladamira Uhlirova 6-2, 6-2.

I was hoping to see Medina win the singles title, but all credit to Vinci, she's having a great season. I don't think any of the big names would want to see her name in their part of the draw in any tournament.

Vinci is another one who's using experience and a mental edge to win titles.

I believe everyone must look at this.
